@132sque They collectively bring in ridiculous amounts of revenue for the school and NCAA.

Hanspete: It doesn't make tuition go up thats a myth. The schools make a lot of profit off of exploiting student athletes that they spend on unessesary things to maintain their non profit status, and the coaches are often paid exuberant salaries that sometimes come to millions a year. They have plenty of money to pay players. They shouldn't be paid like pro athletes or anything or even be paid a lot, but they should be given reasonable pay for the money they make for the school and the work they put in.

If you were to pay every athlete for every sport, what would we base it off, minimum wage? No, they wouldn't be sasitfied unless they get NFL and NBA money numbers, and if that is exploiting them, then all players who bring their teams endorsements (for younger teams) are being exploited as well...

They're still playing now when they get nothing, so claiming they would be unsatisfied with low pay is unjustified.

@dmussi12 Should they go on strike to show how unsatisfied they are? Is that the only way to express lack of satisfaction? Most are probably satisfied.
